Rock Art of The Great Ocean Road

On the way to Apollo Bay I stopped off at a beach for a break from the drive south and to look at the hundreds of cairns that various visitors have built on the beach. Some of the cairns were very well built and others were surprisingly delicate. One was very impressive, balancing on small edges. I spent some time photographing it and on the way back to the car I met the artist and his girlfriend laughing at my interest  in his beach sculpture.

A well made, well balanced cairn, with the artist appropriately unbalanced…
